of texas in the last five years. roughly one million lost jobs in california. it is amazing. one of the points i made for writing a book on this, what we are seeing is one of the great wealth transfers in american history geographically from states like california that do not get it right, and my state, and states that do get it right, like texas. this is one reason to be bullish on the future of texas. one of the interesting things is texas does a much better job, in my opinion, of economically assimilating immigrants so they are successful here. california is more of a welfare state. it indoctrinates immigrants into the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas for jobs. people go to california for welfare. you are seeing the differing economic outcomes as a result. texas is the model other states should be emulating. >> stephen moore from a recent discussion we covered. when you see some of those clips, the video portions, you can see them all in our video library. he was comparing jobs in california and texas. we will go to texas next. john, o

on in north carolina legislatively, that's the fraud. what's going on in texas legislatively, that's the fraud. it's a made-up story to go after minorities. it's a made-up story to go after the elderly, the poor, the economically challenged and also to set up a bunch of hoops for the young kids in this country to get involved in the process. i say we can win this fight. but today has to be a wake-up for all americans that we have a long way to go. i want to bring in hillary shelton of the naacp, the grio's joy reid, and also lehigh university professor, james peters peterson. now, we all have our issues and things that we believe in. i lived diversity, i went to a black high school. i saw communities get resourced. back when i was in high school, we had after-school programs, we had resources. there was no idea like, we're not going to fund this school in this district, but we're not going to fund this one for certain reasons. and we are setting a dangerous precedent in this country by accepting the fact that teachers are the problem. that public education is failing all across the board. what
. then concern about the recent roll back, especially in north carolina and texas and florida of voting rights and that we have to make sure we are diligent and stay on it. so that the dream, have we made progress? absolutely. but we still have a lot of work to do and we have got to make sure that as reverend lowrie said we came to commemorate and we have to agitate in our districts and that is important and dr. king would want us to continue to move on and work hard as john lewis says and still have the comeback. i think we are feeling the effects today of a southern strategy put together by richard nixon some time ago to dilute the power of african-american legislators. we have less power in the sense we are not in houses where we are in the majority. and so we have got to figure out how we work that and we need people to come out to vote like never before, especially in local elections, city council and state assemble and state senates and mayoral election p.m. that makes the difference on the bigger ends so the african-americans have the power that dr. king dream was all about. >> the drea

about during the annual physical checkup the former president has at his doctor in dallas, texas. what we are told by aides is that during the exam there was a discovery of a blocked artery. what we don't know, were there any symptoms? anything leading up to that? that, we don't know. what we can say about the former president is he has maintained a very rigorous physical activity. he is known for cycling and doing a lot of cardio exercise so that makes this even more surprising in some ways at least from a layperson's point of view. he hasn't had any other complicated medical issues. mostly it's been scrapes from falling off bicycles where he's had treatment in the past and issues with his knees. so what we learned is that he went this morning into a procedure, not open heart surgery, nothing like that. a stent procedure which can be done through an artery where a stent is placed in, the blocked artery to open it up and that resumes the blood flow. what we're told is that he is doing well. he's in high spirits. he will remain in the hospital today but is expected to be relieved tomorr
years, roughly, rough numbers, about 1 million new jobs in the state of texas in the last five years. and roughly a million lost jobs in california. that's amazing but, in fact, one of the points that we are writing a book on this is what we're seeing is one of the great wealth transfers in american history, geographically, from states like california that don't get it right. my home state of illinois is another example in states that do get it right like texas. this is one reason to be very bullish on the future of texas. the interesting thing also is texas and california are the two highest immigration states. one of the interesting things is that texas does a much, much better job in my opinion of economically assimilate in immigrants so that they are successful. telephone is much more of a welfare state. it in dr. mays immigrants into the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas in my opinion for jobs. people go to california for welfare. so you're saying i think the different economic outcomes as a result of this. texas is the mall the other sta
